Mason Owen Ray is proud to represent his community as King Reboog of the 69th annual Floresville Peanut Festival and the Court of Broadway Lights.

Mason is the son of Tom and Pam Ray. He is the grandson of the late Curtis and Joan Ray, stepgrandmother Pat Tackitt Ray of Floresville, and Tom and Jan Gruidl of The Woodlands.

Mason is a senior at Floresville High School. In the past, he has been a part of the cross country and track teams. He is currently a member of both the Tiger football and basketball teams. He has served as a varsity basketball captain for two years and earned recognition his sophomore year as District Newcomer of the Year and his junior year as 1st Team All District. Mason served as treasurer of the junior class and is a member of the National Honor Society. He is an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in San Antonio.

Mason is the fifth generation of Rays to live in the community. In 1899, his great-great-grandparents, Will and Callie Ray, bought a farm in Fairview to raise cotton. Their son, I. B. Ray, later diversified to dairy farming. In 1942, some of the land was used to farm peanuts. He and his wife, Wilma, were dedicated stewards of the land, as were his great-uncle, Carl Ray, and his granddaddy, Curtis Ray.

Participation in the Peanut Festival is another Ray tradition. Mason’s Mimi, the late Joan Smith Ray, served as princess in the 1954 Court of Indian Summers. Each of his aunts and uncle, Chrystal, Rachel, and Russ, also served in Children’s and Royal Courts. Mason’s dad, Tom, served as prince in the Court of Traditional Peanut Festivals. Mason’s older siblings, Carter and Kelsey, both served in Children’s and Royal Courts. Kelsey served as crown bearer in the Court of Ancestral Cultures. She also served as first runner-up princess in the Court of Romantic Moments. Carter was train bearer in the Court of Victorian Grace and Elegance. He also was prince to First Runner-up Princess Ashton Brannon in the Court of Enchanted Gardens.

Mason will attend Texas A&M University in College Station. He is considering a major in supply chain management or industrial distribution.

Mason and his family extend a warm thank you to Queen-elect Corinne Morkovsky and her family for choosing him to participate as king. Mason and Corinne have been friends since first grade, and he is proud to serve alongside her as King Reboog. Mason would also like to recognize with great appreciation Marietta Matheaus. She is very kind-hearted and has used her talents to create his beautiful cape, which he is excited and proud to wear. Mason also thanks President Michelle Tackitt for all her guidance and participation with the court events to keep the Peanut Festival a community tradition.

Mason encourages everyone to attend and make the Floresville Peanut Festival a tradition in their family!
